MPM-08 New Character – April 2019 – 8500 Yen (see news and thread here)
The Character B is particularly interesting, given that StudSer 29 was initially thought to be the Sideswipe that is now no. 20. That, and the presence of Rampage suggests there may be more Constructicons coming in future years and releases in the line. Take a look below.

And dammit I am excisted for Barricade and Sideswipe more than any other toy in any line at moment. I love those two designs and these new figures look so good!

So really, what do we get from this, other than Takara SS figure numbers?
-Further leaked confirmation of Bonecrusher, Prime number 2, Cogman, and Scrapmetal (who is a Deluxe by his pricing)
-Leader Megatron (maybe the 2007 design?) and Jetfire, which I think showed up on Amazon but we weren't sure what line they were for
-A THIRD Optimus, possibly to coincide with Jetfire's release because Super Mode
-A Voyager Rampage, interesting, wonder if he'll be red or yellow
-A Deluxe Character B, who based on prior knowledge could be: the retail release of an SS Drift Amazon leaked, Hightower (HIGHLY unlikely since the figure is Deluxe priced, that's entirely too small for him), one of the exclusive Bumblebees Hasbro put out that Takara hasn't touched yet, or a new figure/character we don't know about yet (Mirage/Dino? A Wrecker? Jolt? Soundwave? A repainted Crosshairs? A TLK Barricade?)
All in all, this is indeed interesting, the plot continues to thicken. We're supposed to get SS reveals this week from London, right? Maybe they'll show this stuff...
Edit: Oh, there's a picture that proves that's the helicopter Dropkick, whoops, just ignore that part I guess.

Let's hope it can partform to hell and back so that he can combine perfectly with SS Optimus.

That was my first thought as well.

Super excited to see these figures though! Aren’t we supposed to be getting some reveals soon?

...oh yeah, that'd probably make way more sense than a bunch of the possible characters I listed. I really should stop posting in response to new stuff after midnight...

Leader at the very least.

Depend which one. Many deluxes do not feel "premium" at all. But so far, I think the line is killing it with the voyagers and leaders so far. Thundercracker and Grimlock being shiny examples.

On a less pessimistic side, it’s so reassuring to see that Has/Tak recognizes that this particular line has such potential. There’s still a large number on on screen characters left to tackle. Here’s hoping that they get to most of them. I wouldn’t mind some more Decepticon cannon fodder, so long as they’re new molds. I feel like if they make a Shockwave, then that two headed Decepticon based on his form would be a given. I’m also banking on them doing the rest of the Dinobots, but, you know....good. With nice screen accurate paint jobs, and somewhat more in scale. SS Grimlock is great, and I love my AoE Scorn and Strafe, but I want to fill out the rest of the Dinobots.
The last listing, the new character with the larger price tag, has be really curious. Going by the price, it’s safe to assume that it’s larger than leader class, right? Or else there’s something more to it than just a largish figure.
